The lake level is still up and the Mackinaw action has been rated very good for trollers using Rapalas in the deeper areas in front of the marina and by the Woods Creek area. A few nice brown have come out of the era with worms or Powerbait from shore or a boat. The rainbow action has been fair for anglers using blades and worm or Needlefish. Still a lot of bugs in the area and and the fish are hungry. You may have heard about the spring colors up by Winnemucca and Round lake. Looks like they are still there and came out a little later this year, for those that would like to take a hike. The Caples Lake Resort and Marina is open for launching and boat, kayak and stand up paddle board rentals. For me, it's a little to hard to fish off of a paddle board. For more information stop by the Caples Lake Resort and general store.

Good luck on your next fishing adventure. If you have a question. a report in our local fishing area or have a photo of your catch, send it to [email protected]. Hope to see you on the waters. Good fishin' and tight lines.
